Weekend Plans

(I am totally copying this from NieNie. I have no original ideas of my own today!)

Here is what I am hoping to get accomplished this weeked:

1) Get the winter tires taken off our car and all-seasons put on. I am deciding that if it snows again between now and November we will just stay home! Ha! Really this is just an excuse for me to hang out at Costco by myself for awhile on Saturday morning. Pretty awesome really!

2) Finish writing (and publish) a couple of blog posts I've had in drafts for awhile, where "awhile" is anywhere from yesterday to a month ago. Don't get too excited -- they aren't that amazing :)

3) Go to book club on Sunday.
     3a) Finish my book club book.

4) Spring clean Rachel's room, the hallway and entry way, the living room and the dining room.

5) Catch up on my daily Bible Reading. I'm about a week behind, which isn't bad considering we're a third of the way through 2013.
     5a) Figure out how we can already be a third of the way through 2013.

6) Knock a few more things off my "41 Before 41" list.
     6a) Write a post about why some of them will never be accomplished.
          6b) Think up convincing excuses reasons for 6a.

7) Go to Hamilton to celebrate Alissa's ordination with her.
     7a) Think about how to explain what "ordination" means in our Mennonite church context.
          7b) Figure out who to ask about 7a.

8) Change the blog header to reflect the more Spring-like weather.
     8a) Hope the weather will take a hint from the updated blog header and STAY THAT WAY!

9) Deal with the pile of paper on the plastic organizer, which is really an extension of my desk.

10) Go to the gym. Preferably on my own. Possibly with the entire family in tow.

11) Take some pictures so that I won't have to post any more picture-less posts. It doesn't bother me when other people do that but it does when I do that.
     11a) Figure out why I hold the double standard mentioned above.

Have a great weekend! What are your plans?


  1. Yikes, a third of the way through the year??! Insanity!

  2. It looks like your to-do list is about as long as mine for the weekend! Unfortunately, everything on the list is trumped by preparing for my qualifying exams on Wednesday. :/ Maybe next weekend!

  3. You always make me laugh! You should do a post about how you make the blog headers. I would love to know!

    1. I take a picture and send it to Dave telling him what colour I want for the title. It would be a very short post :)

      I think he makes them in a program called "Gimp" which is similar to Photoshop.

      Dave could either make one for you, if you specified what photo, what font, etc, or he could write a post about how to do it in Gimp which is a free program. Which is probably why we have it instead of Photoshop!

    2. Okay, thanks! I'll look it up. I'll ask ya'll if I have any questions.

  4. If you get all that accomplished in a weekend, I'll definitely be impressed! ;-) And I guess my plans involve studying for final exams (after Evan's baseball game tomorrow of course). *Sigh* Good luck getting it all accomplished! :-)


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
